It all boils down to what the definition of a programming language is. If we take Turing-completeness as the sole criterion then HTML is not a programming language. But the selection of that criterion is subjective in itself. Not all programming languages are Turing complete. A Turing machine is a mathematical model and not a definition for a programming language.
